Why in the world would you think that your sequence is flawless?I am still confused. My method seems flawless and her method seems overlycomplicated.
I explained to you that the radical is in part a grouping symbol.Why are the rules the way they are?? What determines them to be true, like if you gave someone two pieces of candy and then gave them another two pieces of candy, then you gave that person 4 pieces of candy( not 5, not 4.5, not 4.1). So when would all these exponents be actually used in real life?? What is the practical day to day approach to this stuff?
Also, for step one, why can't you separate them out like I did in my images?? Why are the numbers trapped under the hood sign thing??
